Four-timer for McCoy

Champion jockey Tony McCoy left Market Rasen four winners better off as he chases his fastest ever 100.

Lucky Cody (13-8) won the JL Telemarketing Ltd Novices' Hurdle for Brian Ellison, who was also on the mark at Galway.

Chalk It Down (10-11 favourite) was an easy winner of the Smart-GF Kids Beacon Of Hope Handicap Hurdle for trainer Warren Greatrex.

McCoy had to work far harder on O'Callaghan Strand, the 4-1 winner of the Office Friends Celebration Handicap Chase while the diminutive Dorry K (6-4 favourite) took the concluding Plantation Rug Company Handicap Hurdle for Jim Best.

The four winners moved McCoy on the 89 mark for the current campaign.
